Still hunting for a special something for your favorite Valentine? The NewBo City Market in Cedar Rapids is hosting a Last Minute Valentine’s Day Market on Thursday, February 13th from 4:00-8:00pm. We’ll be there, along with lots of other talented vendors. Check out the list here and I hope to see you this Thursday!
*Due to this event, the studio will be closing at 3:00pm this Thursday.
I bought this roman, tiled typeface some time ago and had yet to find a good use for it. I like its lines and formality, but for some reason I just hadn’t found a home for it yet.
I decided to set a line and try it out for some stationery I was planning on gifting to some friends for their wedding. There was its home. It was a nice formal face for stationery, but in a fun color combo. (I may be in love with the gray and yellow combo — a touch of cool gray with some sunny warmth.)
I’ll be working on more stationery sets like this one that use handset type from my collection. If you’d like a set of stationery like this one, I’ve got a listing in my online store here. Not quite what you’re looking for? Contact us at the ole shop — we do all sorts of custom stationery with different typefaces, colors, and envelopes (more examples here).

I finished up our personal Christmas cards before December 25th (a miracle in itself) and made John go out in the falling snow for the photo on the card — he was excited.
The holidays with my family also included a ton of snow. It was a white Christmas indeed.

Somehow its mid-November and the studio has been decking the halls! We’ve already started custom orders for Christmas and we’re debuting our new holiday photo card collection! We’ve got plenty of letterpress cards available (that will be debuting this weekend at our Holiday Open House!), but we wanted to have a few designs available for those wanting to include a photograph in their holiday greetings.
Check out the designs and details here.
